Ikea product
Someone posted a while back about an Ikea bed thing that elevates the head of your bed. Well we bought one, not the cheapest one or the expensive one, the one in the middle. It is pretty great for reflux. We keep it at the lowest setting, which is about 15%. It's fantastic for when they get colds too, as it helps them breath easier! Anyways, it's called Lerback and it's a pain in the A assemble, but worth it. Just thought I'd share!

Renee, mother to Nicholas, born 4/18/08 with silent reflux, moderate laryngomalacia, Sandifer's Syndrome& suspected MSPI. On Neocate, Simply Thick and Prevacid. Also mother to Nathan, born 12/06/06, who had mild reflux the first few months.
We've just been putting books under the crib legs. It's pretty ghetto-but very effective and fits the budget!

Sara, Mom to Isobel 10/01/08 Dx Silent reflux @ 6 wks. Prevacid 22.5mg split in 2 doses. Pepcid .5ml twice a day. Diagnostically confirmed milk protein, egg and cat allergy. Suspected corn, pea and squash allergy. Trialed Alimentum and Elecare without success, currently on Isomil Advance RTF with moderate success. Barium Swallow and UGI 3/08 Pondering a ph probe and endoscopy.

I have a quesstion for you ladies... My LO is 3 months and still NEEDS to be swaddled. She simply cannot sleep otherwise as she about knocks herself out with flailing arms. This presents a problem because we also have to angle her crib mattress and she slides down the angle. The bigger problem with this is that the blanket she's swaddled with inevitably works loose sometime during this slide and ends up around her face and head.

Have any of you had this issue? Any suggestions? I'm trying to wean her from the swaddle, but it's slow going and I'm too sleep deprived to figure it out.

You should have seen some of the nights when A was still being swaddled. Which to me was much easier! She couldn't fight going to bed. Once she was swaddled she knew it was bedtime and she was out (most ofthe time). We used those swaddler blankets. We got ours at babys r us. They have velcro on them and their legs are in a little pouch. It worked great and both of my girls slept swaddled until they were at least nine months. When she started fighting it or just getting out of it. As far as keepign them from sliding down that is difficult. We actually found a very dense pillow and made a wedge under her . So basically there was a "v" shape in her cribe to keep her from sliding. Sounds strange but it worked for a while.

I just re-read an older post of yours and you mentioned having ANOTHER C-Scetion..You have already been there and I didn't realize that..At least you know more or less what to expect! When I went in for Seamus' delivery I had only seen old 1970s home birth propoganda films which horrified me when they sopke of C-Sections. It was so much better tham I imagined! Anyhow, you are still welcome to e-mail me for any reason whatsoever! Cheers and goodnight

LOL! u must have read my mind from a distance. I have searched post for the last 3 days looking for the info on that bed and couldn't find it.

Thank you.

My pillow bed worked great for a while, but it has to be washed often to retain enough fluff to be effective.

Does it take a regular mattress too? Or do you need to buy one that works with the bed?
Check with your
doctor first!
